On September 7, 1977 the prototype of Switzerland's ultra-light Aviafiber Canard-2FL sailplane made its maiden flight, with Ernst Ruppert in control. Launch can be achieved either by rolling downhill or by foot, the pilot drawing his legs in and closing leg doors and canopy after take-off. Flying prone, he controls his speed within the 23-62 m.p.h. range by sliding back and forth on a board. Landing is made on a retractable front skid. The aircraft weighs 95lb empty.
